About this book


Contributions by leading experts and others to understanding the crucial role of metacognition in relation to broad areas of education make this collection a uniquely stimulating book. It encompasses metacognition in both the neglected area of teaching and the more well-established area of learning. The twelve chapters contribute to our understanding of the construct of metacognition and to its role in both teaching and learning. It addresses domain-general and domain-specific aspects of metacognition, including applications to the particular subjects of reading, speaking, mathematics, and science. It is organized into four major sections which address metacognition in relation to students' learning, motivation, and culture; and to teachers' metacognition about instruction. This collection spans theory, research and practice related to metacognition in education at all school levels, from elementary through university. Dr. Robert J. Sternberg, IBM Professor of Psychology at Yale University, is the discussant.
